About Us


We operate in London and surrounding areas.
Homelessness is an important factor in re-offending. More than half our tenants are ex-offenders and we have only had about 10% of them re-offend. This is way below the average for all ex-offenders.
We house a lot of rough sleepers, but we will house people who are homeless for other reasons, too. This includes prisoners who are due for release, sofa surfers who have outstayed their welcome, people who are about to be evicted and so on.
During their tenancy we stay in touch with our tenants whenever we are needed. We expect our tenants to contact us with the housing problems they would usually take to their landlord. Some of our tenants have little or no experience of renting in the private sector and this way we ease the path a little for them.


What sort of accommodation do you provide?
All our tenancies are in the private sector. Due to the most recent benefit caps in November 2016 - most of the accommodation we provide is shared (own bedroom and shared use of the kitchen and bathroom)

How old do I have to be before I can be registered with Fresh Start Housing?
You must be eligible for the full Housing Benefit / Universal Credit. Since 1 January 2012, the full LHA/Housing Benefit is only paid to people aged 35 or older (some exceptions apply).

Can you house everybody and anybody?
No. We only have single accommodation.

Are there certain offences that would prevent you considering my application?
We do not accept clients with a conviction for arson.
